MIAMI -- Jurors have failed to reach a verdict for a Florida man charged with threatening to kill the children of U.S. Rep. Brian Mast.
Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that a federal judge in Miami declared a mistrial Thursday for 68-year-old Laurence Key. The Stuart man had been charged with communicating a threat to kidnap or injure a person.
Authorities say Key had contacted Mast's office 478 times before.
It wasn't clear if the U.S. Attorney's Office would seek a new trial for Key.
